CRAZY!

March 28, 2009

No House on Monday……..grrrrrr……Heroes was pretty decent however, one of the better episodes this season I would even say. FINALLY got to see Scrubs again and oooohhhh maaaannn was it a good episode. This season has been unbelievable when it comes to the funny scale. I wouldn’t even know where to begin…….

A whole lot of nothing else happened this week. Jen and I did get to see Changeling on Blu-Ray. We hadn’t seen it since we went to check it out in the theater. I just get glued to the screen watching that flick.

Oh yeah and I recently cemented my path as the nerdiest person I know….. I finally got all seven season of Star Trek: Voyager~!

This officially gives every season of every Start Trek ever plus all of the movies. To top it off I have and am continuing to watch all of it in chronological order! Right now I am on season seven of TNG and season two of DSS9.

The Epic Anniversary show was tonight. All I can say is that it blew away all of my expectations. I think it was easily our best show top to bottom and it had a little bit of everything on it. I got to meet some really classy and just flat out awesome people tonight as well. Thanks for making it my favorite wrestling related day ever in history!

2009 Or “Three More Years Till Apocalypse”

January 1, 2009

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hopefully we can start it off good and end it good. I should probably god back and look at the New Years post from 2008 to see how that year started. Be right back…….

GREAT! Now I remember. Jen was just starting classes and Journeyman was canceled. Well nothing that tragic has happened just yet so so far, so good.

I watched Wanted yesterday. It stars James Mc…….well never mind Angelina Joile is in it and she shows some behind.

Now lets not that get in the way of this flick. Yeah she is hot but the movie is damn good. Pretty good story and an awesome performance by Morgan Freeman. Breathtaking special effects as well. A very cool movie I must say, worth picking up.

In sports new the Pistons are rolling along okay, this hasn’t been their best season in my opinion but they are not doing to bad. Red Wings continue to kick some ass.

Today they beat the Chicago Blackhawks in the Winter Classic 6-3. The game was played outside in Chicago at Wrigley Field. It was quite an awesome sight to see a hockey game out doors for a change. Really good game as well. The Wings were down early 3-1 but came back in a big way.

New Epic show is coming my way in about 15 days. I am with holding reservations about how well we will do. After the last show I am keeping my expectations low.

That’s Me

December 30, 2008

So yesterday I watched “The Wrestler”. The film is getting a lot of Oscar buzz and it’s based on pro wrestling which I have a love/hate relationship with.

If you love pro wrestling this is a must watch. If you are a movie fan it is also a must watch. The movie rang incredibly real and true to me. The acting was really really good. I was very impressed. The character of Randy “The Ram” really hit close to home for me. I see myself in the same light that his daughter sees him.

I was impressed overall with the way everything was done from the writing to the shooting to the edting. I certainly hope it gets some nominations from the Academy.

Less Than Expected

October 27, 2008

That pretty much sums up how I felt about the show on Friday night. I’m sure there are some things that play in to all of this. The current economic environment sucks, and the fact that we had to change the show wasn’t a help either. We had our smaller crowd since the first show, and while everyone was pretty much into the show, it was certainly a let down. The plus side is that we sold out our stock of DVD’s from the last show, so we had extra money to put forth the next show which appears to be in early December.

The show itself in the ring was pretty good. Maybe the best in ring show we’ve done. I am still hoping that the look of the shows increases, something just seemed “off” the whole night for me.

In unrelated news, the Rays are down 3-1 to the Phillies. It appears that I will be 0-3 in my WS picks since 2006. Worst! At least Heroes is on tonight, I have that to look forward to.

Battle Tested

July 29, 2008

If there is one thing I have learned about going through this kind of surgery, and this experience in general it’s that you have to take it one day at a time. You know…..I know that’s a pretty common saying for someone to hear in my shoes, and I usually don’t take a lot of credence in that sort of stuff, but man has it ever been true to me.

Some days it’s a breeze to get through, the time flies. Some days it’s a struggle. Yesterday was a big day for me. Even though I still can’t walk on both feet, I managed to make it up our fifteen stairs and get into the shower for the first time in a month (sponge bathing before that). I will never take showers for granted ever again. I just sat in there and let the water run for a good ten minutes before I even bothered to start washing up.  Getting up and down the stairs comes with a pretty heavy price, it wreaks some pretty decent havoc on my right knee. However it will be worth it a few times a week to take a shower and sleep in my own bed (something I haven’t done since before the surgery).

I watched The Dark Knight the other day. I wasn’t able to go see it in the theater thanks to my foot, so I had to rely on my high speed internet connection to help me watch a washed out shitty hand held cam job. It was watchable, but just barely. Let’s just say it was watchable enough for me to enjoy it. I’ll say this much, it’s automatically right up there with my favorite movies of all time. I loved the original Batman movies as a kid but grew to loathe them as an adult. However the Christopher Nolan series has breathed new life in to the series.  Just and awesome, AWESOME movie!

The next Epic show is coming in a couple of weeks. I’m real excited to see everyone again, and on paper it’s our best show to date, and it’s the show I’ve been waiting for since we got Stage 1 in motion. It sucks that I will be at the audio table the whole show, I’d really like to hang out with everyone in the back and before the show. Sadly the table and the chair is where I will be planted.

In other news the Tiger’s suck. Better luck next year I suppose. I mean barring some sort of wild and crazy comeback. However the Tiger’s M.O. this year has been “WE ARE A DOORMAT FOR NO TEAM!!! ……….. FOR A FEW GAMES…………………Then………..doormat………”

Epic ___________________

June 12, 2008

So the second Epic show is tomorrow night. I was really excited about this time when the first show was coming around, and suffice it to say the experience was not a positive one.

The last thing in the world I want to think about is “how many people will show up”? But sadly this is my biggest concern. Without people we get no money, without money we can’t continue to run shows (obviously). This is all we really want to do. Put on shows, and have fun doing it. I have no idea what to honestly expect coming in to this. I have absolutely no doubts about the in ring stuff. It’s going to be a fantastic show for everyone who is there.

Wish us luck I suppose……………..

Input Failure

March 25, 2008

So I went to the doctors on the 18th. We are definitely doing the surgery. I’m going to be off my feet for a couple weeks, and I won’t be back to myself for upwards of eight weeks. The surgery will be sometime in June. We haven’t picked a date yet.

The Epic show was on the 22nd. For me, the end result was a lot mixed emotions. Everyone worked hard. There were even a couple of great matches. The over all feeling wasn’t there for me though. The coheasiveness and teamwork wasn’t quite there. I really want this to be a place where we are friends, problems can get resolved and so forth. If someone isn’t “ready” yet then offer them some advice, help them out, constructive criticism. If your here to look out for yourself then your in the wrong place. I’ve already written at great length for my disdain of the wrestling business in general and how my ideas and it’s do not mix. If people want to be selfish, look out for themselves, and tear down others and build up themselves then there just isn’t a place for that kind of attitude here. You’ll fit in great elsewhere though. It’s just not the atmosphere I’m looking for. If it’s not bothering us, then it shouldn’t be bothering you. Obviously we want to make things better, but just saying someone did a shit job doesn’t fix anything, nor help. I hope people will keep that in mind in the future.

I did throw together a rather sloppy teaser together. The YouTube version can be seen below. The better version can be found on the Epic Site, which is located in the links on the right.

If you get a chance, check out Thank You For Smoking.

Jen and I watched it on one of the many pay channels we have currently. I don’t remember which. But it was a really awesome movie. Highly suggested. I am eagerly awaiting my next set of Netflix movies as well. And the days are counting down to season one of NIGHT COURT~!
